CFL Pick 'Em, Week 16: Nail biters and blowouts dominated Week 15 action in the CFL! But Week 16 is a five-game week as Thanksgiving promises Monday afternoon football. Get your drumstick ready and make your picks inside!

Ottawa manhandles Montreal in the nation's capital while Calgary comes from behind to topple the Ti-Cats at home; out west, Edmonton's last-minute field goal crushes the Blue Bomber's hopes of making the playoffs while BC gets it done against the sad sack Riders in Vancouver.

Dr. J will post the standings later this week. In the meantime, here are the previews for this week.

WEEK 16

Toronto @ Ottawa (Tuesday, October 6) Didn't we just do this? Yes, but the MLB success of the Blue Jays meant Toronto's "home" game will now be played in Ottawa for the second week in a row. A three-way tie for first place in the East is on the line if the Argos can make it two in a row in Ottawa.

Saskatchewan @ Hamilton (Friday, October 9) Both teams coming off tough losses last week, but Hamilton has much more to play for if they hope to hold on to first place in the East without star QB Zach Collaros.

Edmonton @ Calgary (Saturday, October 10) Battle of the Best in the West! The only two teams to lock up 2015 playoff spots, Calgary and Edmonton are in a bitter race to see who gets home field advantage and a bye week in November post-season play. And Edmonton has QB Mike Reilly back. Can the Esks steal one in Cow-town?

Winnipeg @ BC (Saturday, October 10) If the Bombers have any hope of making the post-season is has to start Saturday with a win against a resurgent Lions team, led by third-string wunderkind Jonathan Jennings. Can Winnipeg coach Mike O'Shea rally his club after a tough loss?

Toronto @ Montreal (Monday, October 11) Toronto gets a bye, plays a game, gets a bye, then plays two games in six days? This is what a nine league team will do to you. Toronto heads into La Belle Province to play a directionless and inconsistent Allouette team. Can the Argos keep Montreal from a coveted crossover spot?

Good luck!

Tuesday games? WTF?

Yeah, and it was a home game for Toronto, at TD (Toronto Dominion Bank) Stadium,
located in The Glebe, a neighbourhood in Ottawa.
Apparently some upstart baseball team has bullied the Argonauts out of their usual home grounds. Good news though, the Argonauts are moving to BMO (Bank of Montreal) Field, located at Exhibition Place, Toronto, effective next season.
Side note: The Toronto CFL club used to play their home games at the Canadian National Exhibition Stadium
(Exhibition or CNE Stadium), on the same property.
The Argonauts have used 4 stadiums (2 in Toronto) as home fields this 2015 season.
Of course, the Argos will be sharing their new facilities with Toronto FC, a soccer team.

Huge thanks to Reever for taking care of the reviews and previews, and sorry to be so late with the standings. I'm in Italy, and the time difference means that last Tuesday's game doesn't start here until tonight.
